I can't remember the name of the guy and his company but who was that guy at the conference that made the announcement that he was selling basically "anything" on his new site with coins? Anyone have that URL? I think it was basically an amazon of bitcoin.
That was probably http://www.bitcoindeals.com/ .

The site it just great. You can buy almost anything with bitcoins. This is breakthrough.

Yes, it could be, as soon as it goes live.
The question is, is it just another overpriced middleman, or will it actually have competitively priced products?

Based on what I have seen when screening through the offers, and also in the example of the bitcoin show, I'd say that it is very competitively priced.

Look yourself at  http://onlyonetv.com/2011/08/the-bitcoin-show-episode-037/

and/or if you can get an invite.

You are right, it depends on the definition.. It's launched on beta, invites only to test it properly and make sure it is robust.

Pattaya!!!  Cool

So a city known for old men on vacation having sex with young girls/boys and another city known for weed.
That is really setting a high standard for bitcoin convention places.

That just strikes me as sad. What group of people would decide those are the best two places to hold conferences?
What does that say about them and the people they are hoping to attend via those city attractions?

I think it says something about some people's (nationalities?) associations. Us europeans are quite used to going to Amsterdam for conferences. Last one I attended there was OSiM - Open Source in Mobile.

(Thailand I've never been to, but in my local country Pattaya is referred to as the biggest tourist centre and lists lots of family activites)

Ok. I see your point and the previous poster. It is a major city with the right infrastructure to support such a convention easily.
It does have things to do and see that are not drug and sex related.

but, lol.. whatever. I can just picture the conversation that happened when choosing them. Amsterdam.. the double play city.

I don't know how an internet currency is supposed to work on a cruise liner with little to no internet connectivity. Good luck with that!

Bitcoin combines money, the wrongest thing in the world, with software, the easiest thing in the world to get wrong.

Gavin, Is there no youtube clip of your conference contribution? Did anyone post that?

Any significantly advanced cryptocurrency is indistinguishable from Ponzi Tulips.

Cruises have satellite internet spread out via wifi to passengers.

But they overcharge for the access, or so I've heard. It will be an excellent test of bitcoin's ability to work in limited connectivity areas, if anything.

Access can be expensive if you're doing anything more than just checking your email.  You definitely wouldn't want to try to stream live from onboard via either your phone or your laptop - the charges would be horrific.

All I can say is that this is Bitcoin. I don't believe it until I see six confirmations.

I did a quick google search on the costs of internet access on a cruise ship in the middle of the ocean and I did not
like what I saw. Think pay by the minute ranging from .35 cents and up... more like up...

I never really thought about the cost but just doing an hour's worth of work on the boat could cost 30 dollars. ow.
